TerraSAR-X Science Service System

The TerraSAR-X Science Service System allows for the submission and evalution of proposals, as well as for the submission of reports.

  • New interrested scientists need to register before submitting proposals.
  • Registered principal investigators of TerraSAR-X data may enter new and maintain existing proposals. A general proposal submission is possible at any time. The required language is English.
  • Anybody may receive information about accepted proposals and review the corresponding executive summaries. Currently available are pre-launch, CSA-DLR-2010, TSX-Archive-2012, TSX-New-Mode-2013, TSX-Archive and general proposals.
  • The pdf document: How to submit a TSX proposal gives a short description of the corresponding procedure.
  • Usually investigators will get the data for the costs of fulfilling the user request. Discounts will be applied for larger order volumes, and for dedicated research programs and institutions contributing to the TerraSAR-X mission, especially by financial or operational support. Special conditions might be applied to dedicated calls.
    The current COFUR pricelist is applicable to proposals presented to the permanent submission interface.
  • The download of TerraSAR-X data requires special security regulations which are described in the FAQ document. There are also some remarks on ordering in EOWEB in it.
  • All relevant documents are available in the documentation section.
  • For any questions please send an email to the science coordinator tsx.science@dlr.de.
